Congrats Silverhill!

As many have said, good to see you posting again, and what a report to come back with. It’s so satisfying to see someone else express your own thoughts so precisely, you get that buzz of an author-reader connection.

Anyway, got a way to go before 282 but that would be the dream finale: solitary summit camp in sublime conditions.

Well done and thanks for sharing over the years.

Really excellent report. It certainly brought back loads of memories; those two hills were my final ones before Beinn na Lap, my last one.

Lovely report. I was lucky enough to get THAT view as well - one of the most special hill moments ever.

An excellent finish - worth waiting for the weather I think. Congratulations :D .

I have been meaning to do an A' Mhaigdhean summit camp for some time now - we backed out of it in October as it looked like it might cloud in. Probably next year now.

Thanks malky_c :D !
You should be able to find a spot for your tent closer to the summit than I did, depending on the strength and direction of the wind.
It's a fine hill for a summit camp 8)
